IRELAND SHOW BERMUDA THE DOOR
Ireland executed their
second win of the tournament with an assertive 62-32
It was a good
start from the Northern
Ireland shooters, netting a 91% accuracy in the
first quarter. Danielle Oniya for Bermuda also had a great opening 15 minutes,
but received half the amount of chances due to Ireland's strong
mid court defending of the through ball. Ireland were
certainly on the front foot.
However Bermuda weren't to give up that easily. A fresh set of
legs in the form of Akeyla Furbet donned the WA bib for the Bermudans, and it
made the difference - Bermuda now only trailing
by 11 goals and still within reach of a win.
Yet Bermuda couldn't put the pieces together to find that
winning performance. Northern
Ireland stormed the last quarter and put the
final nail in the coffin, winning it 18-3.
"I was very
pleased with my girls performance; they kept to our strategies and made it
difficult for Bermuda" said a happy Northern Ireland head coach,
